Now Open!

Fraunces Tavern Museum announces its newest exhibition, Defining Lines: Maps From the 1700s and Early 1800s.

Come explore the landscapes of America’s early history, as seen in maps of the 1700s and early 1800s. This exhibit examines the detailed depictions of an emerging nation as portrayed by cartographers. The 27 exhibited maps provide a wider perspective to the evolving nation’s place in history, including a never before seen map from 1804 depicting the United States’ postal routes.

This exhibit is made possible, in part, through the generous support of Dr. Michael C. Wolf, Sons of the Revolution in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc.
